getting the SC off
what friggin tool do you use to get the damn upper bolt out to remove the SC?
i have the torx socket set, but no combination of adapters gives me enough room to turn the darn thing.

1/4" open ended wrench, then throw that damn bolt away and replace it with a "normal" bolt.

I tried with everything I had, and after about 20 minutes I run out of curse words, so I ran down to Lowes and got a little $15 toolset by Gearwrench that's meant to get in tight places. I've already got my money's worth out of it and more.

finally got it off with a 1/4 box wrench. i officially hate working on the jetski. i've put 100s of hour in building the jeep, but nothing has ever pissed me off so much as dropping a slippery little wrench and having to fish it out with a magnet 100 times.
ok, so, i pulled the 3 bolts out. should the whole SC housing come off (2 halves) ? do i need to give it a little knock with a hammer?

Can you twist the sc? if yes then the three bolts are for sure removed and you should be able to gently pry or tap with a rubber mallet to remove. Remember you have to also remove the waterbox, that is a whole new set of curse words!

subscribing....this is kinda entertaining...
make sure you got the mounting bolts off and not a couple housing bolts (holding the two halves)....like he said, if you can twirl the sc'er around it's loose and may require a little muscle or a gentle persuasion bar...

ya gotta tie a long string to the 1/4" box wrench... drop it all you want, nice and easy to retrieve when u have 3 feet of string attached to it.
once u put some hours into working on them... they honestly are very very easy to tinker with. Just need to learn all the tips and tricks

hahaha, I never thought of that! I can just see my friends now, "why in the hell do you have strings attached to all of your tools" me--"go remove the supercharger".....lol

I also learned the string trick the hard way, it is alot better than digging the fiberglass from your hands from blindly searching for the dropped wrench.
